Mohsen B. Mesgaran is an Assistant Professor of Weed Ecology at the Department of Plant Sciences, University of California, Davis. Prior to that, he worked as a research fellow and postdoc at the University of Melbourne and Stanford. He studies the eco-physio-evolutionary processes underpinning the spread and escalation of weedy and invasive plants both in agricultural and natural systems. He uses a diverse variety of tools and techniques including advanced modeling, remote and proximal sensing, image processing, and GIS to develop “eco-tech” solutions for ecological management of weeds as well as a better understating of the spatial and temporal variability of weed populations and communities.
